Fourth International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt at ICSE 2013



  • Fourth International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt at ICSE 2013

    San Francisco, California, May 20, 2013

    Invited Speaker: Steve McConnell

    On May 20, 2013, Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute will be conducting a workshop in conjunction with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013) in San Francisco to scrutinize the diverse issues that are related to technical debt and the software development lifecycle.

    Managing technical debt is a broad concern of software engineering that blends research and practice. This can be seen from the program that covers topics such as models for measuring and optimizing technical debt, economic models, tool support, managing dependencies, empirical studies, and use of the metaphor and related techniques in practice. To encourage interactive discussion, brainstorming, and community building the workshop will consist of short presentations from the accepted papers. These short presentations will provide a basis for the participants to investigate further open research questions and challenges in practice. It is for that purpose that the program includes sessions dedicated to open discussion.

    We invite members of the software engineering community to join us. The details of the program and other logistics are at our workshop site at
